The Poetry Brothel: Bordello-Themed Literary Experience
If your idea of a poetry reading involves a tweed-clad author, a podium and possibly a nap, then prepare to have your expectations exceeded by The Poetry Brothel, dubbed "New York's sexiest literary event" by Time Out New York. Inspired by the fin-de-siècle bordellos of Paris and New Orleans, this immersive experience invites you inside a lush, speakeasy-style environment to meet your host, or "Madame," who'll introduce you to a rotating cast of poets-in-character, both male and female, emerging and established, and local and international, each with a unique story to tell. They'll engage you with public readings, or if you prefer, private ones (for an additional fee). As with any underground establishment worth its salt, The Poetry Brothel also offers a full bar and themed cabaret entertainment with an ever-changing lineup of live music, burlesque dancers, painters, fortune-tellers and more. The "Wilde Pride" edition now slinks its way back into Los Angeles at El Cid.
